Pervasive and ubiquitous prospects for user modelling and personalisation: extrapolating from project experiences

The User Modelling research community formed in the 1980s. Its founders had a broad and ambitious vision for personalisation. Many aspects of that vision are increasingly being realised. We see them everywhere and every day in pervasive and ubiquitous technology. This means that there are increasingly broad groups that now understand what personalisation can or might offer. And so, it creates new opportunities for research funding, particularly involving multi-disciplinary and commercially driven work that can tackle people’s most important problems.

This talk explores how UMAP researchers can embrace these opportunities. Based on reflections on my Computer Human Adapted Interaction (CHAI) major projects, I will share experiences of successes and failures, the serendipitous wins and unanticipated challenges, the emerging perceptions of what matters in UMAP research as well as aspects that people may not yet be ready for, even if we believe that they are important. The talk is organised in terms of two perspectives: the researchers from the UMAP disciplines; and human needs that are the drivers for personalisation. It presents a rational for building a shared UMAP research agenda, multi-disciplinary, large teams tackling problems that people regard as important and of holding onto, and being able to still work on, the aspects you believe in, even if they are not yet popular.
